I missed much of the late breaking news on Monday since I was attending SearchFest, an all day SEM conference here in Portland. So, when I got home my husband asked me if I heard the big news of the day, to which I replied, “No, what?” In my defense, we had limited wifi coverage and honestly I was really wrapped up in to what was being said at the conference that I didn’t find myself online much. You all know what I’m talking about…tuning out and checking email and news while “listening” to a speaker. Since then, I’ve had time to check out the Eliot Spitzer reputation debacle and have a few initial nuggets to share.
When doing a search on the typical buzz monitoring sites we use, I actually didn’t find much in the way of spikes in searches for his name but that’s probably because the news is still pretty fresh. Give it a week and we’ll see some fun trend lines.
But what I did want to quickly benchmark and share are his Google results from the past few days, which actually aren’t that disastrous. Beyond looking at the top news listings, the rest of the SERPS aren’t filled with negative results…yet. To see what they might look like soon, check out Jim McGreevy’s results.
However, I did find his Blog results to be interesting, if not downright hilarious at times (yes, I know the situation isn’t funny!) But check out my favorite blog post titles:
- The Fall of Eliot Spitzer
- Burn in Hell Eliot Spitzer
- Eliot Spitzer Unzipped
- Eliot Spitzer’s Judgment Gap
- Eliot Spitzer and Me: The Difference Between Us
- Eliot Spitzer, Would You Resign Already?
- Crime Scene Tape Around Eliot Spitzer’s Pants
- Eliot Spitzer Hires a Hooker and Screws His Wife
But my absolute favorite is David Letterman’s Top Ten Eliot Spitzer excuses, with #1: I thought Bill Clinton legalized this years ago
